A week of vacation in Costa Rica costs between $600 and $1,100 for an average traveler staying in mid-priced hotels, lodges or rental houses and doing standard tours. Beachfront accommodations and high dollar activities like deep sea fishing will quickly push the budget over $2,500. On the other end of the spectrum, backpackers can spend as little as $220 a week for a dorm room and plate of beans.

The jewel of the Pacific, Manuel Antonio, is undoubtedly one of the best of Costa Rica
Manuel Antonio National Park
Manuel Antonio national park is not only very easy to get to and easy to stay near, it’s also one of the easiest places in Costa Rica to see wildlife. This tiny park is one of the last places you can see virgin Pacific coastal lowland rainforest outside Corcovado National Park and the only place you can see it then return to luxury lodgings and your choice of fine restaurants.
